the questions in. >> thank you, madam co-chair. i know lisa and vera are frightened, but i find their testimonies very, very frightening and intimidating for the whole country. these people are master electricians, microbiologist, bachelor degree with a lot of executive experience and they are unemployed for a long time. what about those people who don't have their skillset? i'm sorry i missed so much of their testimony. i was perusing through their testimony. they say they've been looking for anything, part-time work, the extent to which they have been willing to accept jobs for half as much as they are worth begin their skill set. really looking at this in terms of any data that you have in terms of what we know has been a real intentionality on the part of some employers to force wages downward, and to force people like them to accept $8 an hour jobs so that the walmart, the care takers of the world, they can forget it about getting anything. i'm wondering the extent to which they have experienced age discrimination and the discrimination -- are employers bold enough to tell

it may have been caused by human error. lisa czar joins us now. good to see you. what have you been learning today? >> well, tony, the attention now is focused on the man at the controls. he was the engineer of this early morning run. he said he zoned out right before the accident, and was jolted to attention too late to stop this speeding train. now, that makes sense based on what we know so far according to don phillips. he covered transportation for decades for the washington post, and now rights for trains mac zone. >> that is sort of rare these days for someone in railroading to speed. so it is just someone that leads to the possibility that for some reason he was not paying attention. >> the safety board said there is nothing wrong with the tract. >> have they talked about technology, right, that may have prevented -- actually prevented the crash, can you tell us about that? >> it's called positive train control, it is a very sophisticating technology. it uses computers, and gps satellite sensors on the track. a central control system. could that have helped here? we asked nts
